Computers are becoming the language of the future. Software currently used and software of the future was investigated. Fifty questionnaires were sent, to the 'Big 8', selected second tier firms, and various companies. The two most popular spreadsheets, word processing, and flowcharting packages were compared to each other. The findings showed Lotus 123 as the best spreadsheet, Flowcharting TT by Patton and Patton as the best flowcharting package, and Wordstar for Word Processing. Northern's Accountancy program is preparing its students for a successful career from a computer standpoint. The survey confirmed that the desireable skills are being taught.
